It's a smart move actually IMO. I like how the listing says "CDs are unplayed" but not "unripped" LOL. He rips the CDs to his computer at high quality, still has the music, gives up the book, and gets a good chunk of his money back (if someone buys, and someone probably will).

He has a better shot selling his “ Surprise” gift
If it’s worth anything

There are people that will pay for those things.

I doubt there isn't anything they could do. He is not selling pirated copies, burnt copies or anything like that. He is selling the originals that he got in the Vault.

As far as why he is selling it, this is only a guess on my part and I could be wrong, i think he might be trying to recoup some of the money. Maybe 2k is a lot of money for him, had to scrape to get it together and he just really wanted the music. So now he burnt the music on his hard drive and is selling off the actual legit CDs and book because he legally can with out getting in trouble. He wants some memento so he keeps the other stuff and does not want the hassle of shipping the entire vault. Probably not cheap because of size and weight and could get damaged. No stress on any of that.

I would be so pissed if I bought this and they turned around and released it for general sale for 59.95 or some shit like that.

Much like Eddie Trunk's version he tweeted he received, this is the book and the discs only.

These are promos they sent out. I'm sure the seller only gains $1000 and is not losing anything.

No longer available. The link took me to a nice Gene Simmons card and guitar pick display, instead.

Soon..the vault will be a retail pack...99.90 wall mart.

Better than go straight with 2K and lots of illegal downloads.

Re: Vault CD's $1000 BIN w/ book, autograph

it says the listing is no longer available, and a Gene card listing comes up.
Seems he took the listing down, I found the listing, and I probably would have went for it, meeting Gene and all the other stuff don't matter to me at all, met him in 1995 at the KISS Convention.

I agree there will be a "regular" release of the music one day. Gene wouldn't pass up that additional money. For the Vault buyers not happy, Gene will say, "But you paid for the music and the 'experience,' and you got a lot more than just the CDs." And he'll be right, actually.
